Whale hello there!

Learn about the whales off our New England coast and then go exploring for them; joining a local whale watching trip!

Your instructor will be marine biologist, Lindsay Hirt. She will guide your child in exploring local coastal areas, learning to observe as a naturalist does.

Our microscope lab features Leica brand compound microscopes and a stereo microscope. Your child learns how to use these microscopes and how to prepare specimens for observation and discovery.

We will also examine x-rays images of marine life to then understand their make-up and how they have adapted to their marine environment.

Inside we will use scientific methods and equipment to study our finds from the beach. Imagine using a stereo microscope to get up close to a tiny hermit crab!

Engineer, John Aviste will also be on hand to lead short activities and challenges that have an applied science spin to them. Does a humpback whale really have the power of a 747 jet during take-off? Or as an engineer, what could your child come up with that helps to sustain our ocean environment and its varied life?

• discover individually and in teams
• use scientific methods and equipment
• your child has fun exploring his or her particular interest
• games & challenges add to the fun
